Pole dancing offers a pole-based exercise more effective than 1920s pole sitting, more energizing than pole vaulting, and more sensual than polenta. Whet your appetite for pole-based fitness with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get five pole-dancing classes at InShape Ladies Fitness (a $125 value). Participants must be female and at least 18 years old.
InShape Ladies Fitness—a female-owned, women-only exercise facility—helps women work out by showing them how to work their proverbial it. Pole-dancing classes whisk participants into a den of sensual struts, where a seasoned instructor demonstrates how to spin on a pole and discreetly ask for its phone number. One-hour sessions impart other pole-hugging skills as well, such as sexy slides, aerial tricks, and come-hither handstands. Students can burn calories and tone muscles throughout the body as they learn how to climb and twirl under the watchful eyes of a spotter. Classes at InShape Ladies Fitness can be used to spice up an exercise routine or surprise a significant other with an activity more fun than making them up like a clown while they are sleeping. Consult the studio’s calendar for class dates and times, and visit the FAQ for a list of items to bring to class.
